Work/Life Balance

Changing influences and factors on the job, legal requirements, and increasing expectations in your personal life contribute to a growing level of stress for mind and body. Considering these stress factors together with social challenges and demographic changes, programs geared towards a constructive work/life balance become increasingly important – requiring a comprehensive approach that takes job-specific as well as external influences into consideration.

Health Management

The Warsteiner Brewery has become the first company in the German food industry to receive the TÜV-certificate DIN SPEC 91020 for its internal health management. This certificate was developed in 2011 by the DIN (German Standards Institute) and the B•A•D GmbH in Berlin. It stipulates that companies develop and adhere to their internal framework and structures in such a way that they are able to promote the long-term health and performance of their employees. In accordance with these requirements, the Warsteiner Brewery systematized its health management and embedded it into the existing work processes. For instance, management participates in training sessions about “Health at the Work Place” to facilitate the responsible interaction with employees. This includes conversations with employees early on about their health status to avoid long-term illnesses, check on support options for recovery, and to prevent potential relapses. Many employee-oriented measures to promote health, such as company fitness courses and nutrition classes for employees, complement these offerings.
